Graham Greene – Stamboul Train

 

Stamboul Train is one of Greene’s more impressive novels, set aboard the Orient Express – categorised as an ‘entertainment‘, a classification that Greene used to distance his more light-hearted work from his serious pursuits of literature, Greene later said that it’s the only book that he’s ever written that was written solely to please the reader.

The story itself is essentially about a number of strangers who meet each other on the train, and the subtle interplays of their lives. It’s a simple plot, but it’s also gripping, understated in contrast to the elegance of the train it’s set on. It’s a great little read, and I’d love to one day travel  the route while reading it.
